String art looks stunning and can be very relaxing to complete. The hard part is deciding what image you to create which is why we have put together this list to give you lots of string art inspiration!
To make your very own string art you will need a few basic items,
Start by sketching your image onto the wood board base. If you struggle with drawing have a look online for a template that you can print out and transfer. You can cut around the image and then trace around it or put dots where you will hammer the nails. For a more detailed image cover the back of the image with pencil, put it face down onto the board and trace over the image pressing quite firmly, the image then should copy over. Hammer the nails along the outline of your design and then twist your thread/string around the nails to complete your design. Some people like to stick the image onto the wood board and hammer the nails directly into this and then remove the pint out after. It is totally up to you, try different ways to find out what works best for you!
